Wife Geraldine and family of the late Joe McGurk wish to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all that sympathised with us in our recent sad bereavement.
To all who sent mass / sympathy cards, letters of sympathy, telephoned, sent floral tributes or lined the funeral route, thank you.
A special word of thanks to Father Boyle who celebrated Requiem Mass and to Margaret Ann for the beautiful singing. We would like to thank Dr. Murray and the staff at the Oaks Family Practice and also the Doctors and Nurses of Craigavon Area Hospital.
To Kate McAleer Funeral Undertakers for the compassionate and dignified manner in which she carried out the arrangements, especially in these difficult times.
Thanks also to the gravediggers. As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this as a token of our appreciation.
